Great idea, & well processed for a very effective image....the one niggle is that the background trees are sharper than the subject, which detracts a wee bit. I would shoot this scene again, but focus manually on the wall, then repeat the various deserves doing again because it's a brilliant idea, that just needs fine tuning.
Very well done, nonetheless !!!!!!

I love this idea, and strangely one of my friends (David Griffiths) also added an image like this as his very first upload, I think it's a great way to introduce yourself to your fellow ePHOTOziners if you don't mind me saying!

Niknut is right, the focussing is a little out, if a human figure is the main point of interest it should be pin sharp. Also a little eye contact with one of you may help the image a little, just to let the camera know how upset you are with the world. Just a thought, although maybe you prefer lack of eye contact for added tension?

Here's Davey_Griffo's link, he tends to add a little humour to his multiple self, but I'm sure you'll find it interesting to study how other people approach the genre. ***** link *****

There are some valid points made above.

I'd also say that keeping your face in the shot on all incarnations of yourself makes it more obvious what you've done. I made the mistake of showing my face on only one on my first effort , and it takes a while for people to realise "oh, they're all you!!".

I also find that some interaction between the various selfs helps to build a story (my brothers are always arguing). This link will take you to an album of all the ones I've done so far, if you're interested/bored enough to look. Smile

Use something to set a focus point (I've used a large soft toy, don't ask!!), then switch to manual, to keep it in the same place. Also, take a meter reading, then set the exposure in manual mode. Finally, set the white balance to whatever is appropriate, don't leave it in auto, especially if you are shooting outside. You'll have a lot less juggling of exposures & colour casts if you do.

Allow your selfs a realistic amount of room. The 2nd from left overlaps the 2 either side in a way you wouldn't, had 3 people been there.

Keep at it. People will think you're mad (my fiancee says I've lost the plot each time I upload a new one), but you'll have a lot of fun. And discover a lot about your camera & photoshop.

If you need any further help, PM me. Assuming you have plans to do any more. This may have been a one-off act of madness. Smile

PS, welcome to EPZ.
